On efficiency


Efficiency is generally defined as the ratio between the forward component of the wind force on the sail/wing divided by the lateral wind force on the sail/wing. If the efficiency is high, the boat is fast, all else being equal.  That is why the AC72 boats and other multihulls have wings. The wings project vertically upwards, resulting in a high efficiency and very fast boats. 

Request to WSSRC


Developing a sailboat is not an easy task. In particular if the sailboat is very different from existing sailboats. It involves high costs and carries the prospect of only a limited return.

Fastest RC sailboat on scale


We have seen many videos on Youtube of multihulls on scale controlled by RC.
